More cards for the purse!

Hi there - Here are a few more cards to go in that card purse!  They still use just the On Your Birthday stamp set and the Everyday Enchantment DSP.  Only a bit more than a week left to get the papers for free during Sale-a-bration - don't miss out!    All three of these cards are simple to make.  Mostly layers of paper with a focal point.  I will be so sad when this paper is gone... I hadn't touched the Peach Parfait paper before but now I love the look with the Pool Party and the Lucky Limeade. 
For the "Happy Birthday" card, I layered the largest butterfly from the embosslit onto the butterfly punch and used one of the Sale-a-bration brads as the body.  The ruffle below the ribbon is a 12 inch strip of the DSP with the bottom edge scalloped.  Then I put sticky strip across the card to hold the ruffle.  You can make the ruffle easily by using your Simply Scored to score random lines first and then pleat it onto the sticky strip.  I did not measure the pleats equally because I'm too lazy for that! :) 






This card is the simplest.   The card base is Very Vanilla.  Add to that a layer of DSP with rounded corners, a circle of a coordinating pattern, and a layer of Very Vanilla with the sentiment.  One little brad as a 'blingy' spot!


Finally this card is strips of the various DSP patterns across the card.  Hard to see clearly in the photo, but the Lucky Limeade piece is scalloped along the edge and it does ruffle up just a bit for some dimension.  The sentiment panel is popped up on dimensionals.  The small Pool Party scallop at the bottom edge of it is made with the Scallop Ribbon Border punch tucked behind there.
Two more cards left in the set - Hope you like them!  Holler if you have questions - or leave a comment...who doesn't love to get comments about their projects?!  Thanks for stopping by -
